Dan and I have been quite the busy bees lately preparing for the little one. Last week we kicked off the beginning of our home transition. Moving Dan’s office downstairs into the dining room, changing out the lighting, and selling the dining room set. Dan’s office will become the baby’s room so it was important for us to get a jump start on moving things out so we can start preparing for the furniture. I really like the new office. It’s different being downstairs, but it’s really growing on me. Here’s a snapshot:
Notice the nice new fan above that replaced that chunky chandelier. It matches the furniture perfectly.
We’re excited about getting the baby’s room ready. We went and looked at baby furniture last weekend and we think we decided on a collection. Let me know your thoughts. We’re going for a clean sleek look. We want to have a timeless look that the child can grow into and continue to use the same furniture. With me having an interior design background, I’m sure you can see me getting carried away with the baby room, but we’re going to try to keep it simple. Nutral whites with vintage accents. At least that’s the plan for now. Here’s what we’ve picked out so far for the baby room:
We really love the classic lines and wood accents (if you look close you can see them, but it’s kind-of hard to tell in this picture). Right now we’re looking at getting the Dressing station with hutch, crib, nightstand (not shown) and three drawer chest changing table (not shown). It’s going to be pretty pricey, but since the crib changes to a toddler and adult bed, we’ll keep it for quite some time. Much better than getting butterfly painted princess furniture and having to buy new in a few years. It’s good quality and I think it’ll withstand the test of time. I’m beginning to sound like an advertisement so I’ll stop now. =)
This weekend I was so happy to complete my Europe scrapbook. FINALLY! The last book I was working on had pictures from 2 years ago! So now I’m working on my Hawaii scrapbook. Here’s a sneak peak:
Last November we were in Maui and in May we will be going back to Hawaii but visiting the Big Island and Oahu. I can’t wait! Hopefully I can finish this scrapbook and leave room for more photos after the vacation in May.
